    all of a sudden it cavitates?

    05 rxp w/19hrs on it. Went to lake Powell in az/ut this last week and the ski ran great until I sucked up a couple of reeds near the shore. It was nothing major, Ive had it happen on all my skiis before w/o any problems. Now this thing cavitates bad on the bottom end then hooks up and runs fine on the top end. I really didnt think that a couple of reeds would do any damage. We rolled the ski on its side and there is no visible damage and the wear ring looks fine and but I didnt have a feeler gauge to check it. Any thoughts?
    If it is the wear ring is it best to use a Dremel tool on them to get them out. Thanks, Ryan

    Your wear ring is toast!

    Put the pump in the freezer for an hour and the wear ring will pull right out.

    Damn, fast reply, thanks!
    What about putting the new wear ring in? Is it like my old x-4 style hull where you could freeze the new one and pound it in with a rubber mallet and piece of wood?
